In this paper, we proposed an advanced authentication structure for reducing the certificate acquisition time which is one of the factors that should be improved in a conventional wireless PKI. A conventional key exchange method simply performs the key exchange setup step based on discrete algebraic subjects. But the mutual-authentication procedure of wireless PKI for reducing authentication time uses an elliptical curve for a key exchange setup step. We simulated and compared the authentication structure proposed by Sufatrio, K. Lam and the our authentication structure in terms of the authentication time. Simulation results show that the proposed method reduces the authentication time comparing to the conventional wireless PKI authentication method.
